What we've been up to this week.....July 9, 2015

A few weeks ago Russell decided that he
really needed to extend our deck that he had built a few years back to make it more practical.  It's amazing what
he can accomplish in just a few days.
Here are a few photos....

Now we can really use this space
as it's wide enough to accommodate
our table and chairs without
worrying about someone pushing
back their chair too far and falling
off the deck! Plus adding the
planter box was his brilliant idea.
As you can see from this photo we have been getting lots of rain the past few days.
 Much needed and appreciated!  
Last night we went to a fabulous concert
( You can check out all the performers on this site)
Wonderful music that went on past midnight.
We so enjoyed ourselves.
Ben Krakauer on banjo, John Engle on fiddle,
Dominick Leslie on mandolin
and Meredith McIintosh on bass. 

Rushad Eggleston -
 fabulous musician and performance artist.
Phenomenonal banjo player is Ben Krakauer.
I hope all of you are enjoying your summer!


  1. The new deck looks great! The planter was the perfect touch. Don't want anyone falling off the deck.
    Glad you had a good time at the concert.

  2. I love your deck and the planter is fabulous. Great idea. Spices up the entire deck.

    Oh a concert. How fun.

    I'm glad you're getting some rain. Sure wish we were.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. Scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  3. Russell is one handy guy. The deck looks great.

  4. Super deck. Envious of your rain.

  5. What fun, attending concerts and an expanded place to hang out in the back yard! Hope you keep getting rain, in just the right amounts to not drown you yet end the drought.
